Systems Genomics

Genome research has entered the era of systems genomics. Differing from genomics that dissects a genome into its constituent fundamental function elements such as genes, DNA transposable elements, retro-transposable elements, etc., and studies them in a isolated manner, systems genomics considers that a genome is a system and studies its constituent fundamental function elements in an integrative and systems manner. Therefore,systems genomics research will provide a molecular basis of systems biology, thus significantly advancing genomics and biology in numerous aspects.
